Financing Your Medical Education

The admissions process at TUSM is need-blind, as an applicant’s financial circumstances are not considered in the selection process. Financial Aid forms become available in December of each year, but the FAFSA may be submitted any time after October 1st. Please note that effective 2018-19, the FAFSA will require prior-prior year taxes (2016), in place of the prior year as it’s been in previous years. If you have interviewed with us prior to January, we will email you the information on the application process including all forms.  Starting in January and beyond, the Office of Financial Aid will share information with applicants on how to apply during their interview session.

Interviewed applicants do not need to be admitted to TUSM in order to submit financial aid applications. The Financial Aid Office strongly encourages all interviewed applicants to submit complete financial aid applications as soon as possible. This is particularly true for applicants who have interviewed with us and remain in Active Wait List status. Students in this group may be admitted at any time and required to respond quickly. If your complete financial aid application is already on file in the Financial Aid Office, the staff is able to generate an award in a timely manner so that you can make your decision. 

Financial Aid Awards for Accepted Applicants

The Admissions Office notifies the Financial Aid Office when an applicant has been admitted to TUSM. If the applicant has submitted a complete financial aid application, the Financial Aid Office staff generates a financial aid award letter as soon as possible.

All applicants admitted prior to March who have submitted complete financial aid applications should expect to receive an award letter in April.

Applicants admitted during and after the month of April will be packaged as soon as possible after their admission. The Financial Aid Office staff will award a newly admitted applicant quickly, but they must have the applicant’s complete financial aid application on file to do so.  All applicants are held to the priority deadline regardless of when they interviewed at TUSM.  For more financial aid information, please visit the Financial Aid Office Homepage.
